All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Prince Kassim Afegbua, has charged aspiring Nigerian leaders to learn from the strategic communication and campaign initiatives of the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Afegbua, who is a key supporter of Tinubu, said the APC standard bearer’s campaigns had been most strategic, issue-based, sector-specific, and all-encompassing in both content and delivery.
In a press statement Afegbua issued yesterday in Abuja, he said Tinubu takes his campaigns to his target audience, delivers his message in very lucid prose, sets agenda for a robust engagement and anchors his initiatives on the needs of the people.
According to him, “In my many years of being actively involved in politics and political campaigns, this is the most strategic I have seen.”
Afegbua, who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in line with his vow to support a presidential of southern extraction, said Tinubu had spoken to crop growers and farmers in a Town Hall meeting in Minna, Niger State, adding that he proceeded to Lafia to address the miners.
Similarly, Tinubu, according to him, “engaged the hub of the Organized Private Sector (OPS) in Lagos. He visited Warri in Delta, some kind of home-coming for his wife and also took part in the oil find in Bauchi. He made a very strategic statement in Bauchi about recharging the huge economy of the Lake Chad which even Atiku Abubakar from North East is not aware of, and has never spoken of.
“The declining fortunes of the Lake Chad economy needs to be arrested and recharged for its strategic importance to the economy of the nation and the people of the North-East geopolitical zone. He also visited Imo to speak to the leaders and business owners, while assuring them of transforming the South-East zone to another Taiwan in Nigeria. It was not a surprise that the sum of One Billion naira was reportedly donated to his campaign.”
